Does anybody have any suggestions on a very robust link-checking application
for a very large (30gb) web site? The site is comprised almost entirely of
HTML pages generated from FrameMaker-to-WebWorks Publisher-to-HTML. The only
web publishing tool other than WWP that I've seen here (I'm a contractor) is

Anyhow, the site (especially the Archives) have thousands of broken links.
But they don't have a tool that can scan the entire site quickly and
accurately (or affordably).

Have a look at Xenu. I have no idea whether it can handle a very large site, because I've never tried it, but the program is small and free.

I have no association with Xenu except as a satisified user.
